Tuesday with Toni: Mama Elephant Little Boo Agenda

Oh, my goodness!  I had such a fun time making these Halloween treat boxes! They may look fancy but are really quite easy to make. Let me show you.

I selected a few 6x6 patterned papers, including one from MFT Fun & Frolic 6x6 Paper. I diecut these using the Lawn Fawn Tiny Gift Box die.  Each box takes up about 3/4 of the sheet so you'll have a strip leftover to use for something else.

I've included a diagram to show where you need to fold and apply tape (I highly recommend Scor-Tape for this; it's strong and yet easily torn by hand). You can also view the Lawn Fawn video about box assembly.

Now it's time to decorate the boxes, my favorite part! I cut out a bunch of ghosts from Mama Elephant Little Boo Agenda as well as the house and tree from MFT Spooktacular Friends.  I colored them up very quickly with Copics.

Some of the boxes are fancy with a house, tree or moon attached on the back (using Gina K Connect Glue). Or even fancier with a ghost or sentiment popping out at you when you open the box. Others I kept more simple but still super cute.

I'm planning to fill these with a mini Reese's Cup but like the day before I give them out. Otherwise, I'd have to buy twice as many as I need to account for those that end up being eaten beforehand. LOL.
